The Night the Rich Men Burned by Malcolm McKay ($13.99)

Oliver Peterkinney and Alex Glass, two friends from Glasgow’s desperate fringes, become involved in one of the city’s darkest and most dangerous trades: debt collection. While one rises quickly through the ranks, the other falls prey to the industry’s addictive lifestyle, accumulating steep debts of his own.

Meanwhile, the three most powerful rivals in the business–Marty Jones, ruthless pimp; Potty Cruickshank, member of the old guard; and Billy Patterson, brutal newcomer–vie for prominence. And now Peterkinney, young and darkly ambitious, is beginning to make himself known.

Before long, violence will spill out onto the streets, as those at the top make deadly attempts to out-maneuver one another for a bigger share of the spoils. Peterkinney and Glass will find themselves at the very center of this war; as the pressure builds, each will find their actions–and inactions–coming back to haunt them. But it is those they love who will suffer most . . .

The Night the Rich Men Burned is a novel for our times, and Mackay’s most ambitious work to date, proving that in Glasgow’s criminal underworld, there’s nothing so terrifying as money.

Oh man, this book looks amazing and I cannot wait to see how true to the financial world it could be. Finance is not my cup of tea but I do love a good crime and knowing so many in the finance world might make this a true eye opener. I’m hoping this keeps me on my toes and the pages turning well into the evening.

Dodgers
 is a dark, unforgettable coming-of-age journey that recalls the very best of Richard Price, Denis Johnson, and J.D. Salinger.
 It is the story of a young LA gang member named East, who is sent by his uncle along with some other teenage boys–including East’s hothead younger brother–to kill a key witness hiding out in Wisconsin. The journey takes East out of a city he’s never left and into an America that is entirely alien to him, ultimately forcing him to grapple with his place in the world and decide what kind of man he wants to become.

Written in stark and unforgettable prose and featuring an array of surprising and memorable characters rendered with empathy and wit, Dodgers heralds the arrival of a major new voice in American fiction.

Gang life has always fascinated me, so I am excited to jump into this story and I have a feeling my husband is going to want to read this before I do. From the sound of it, this book should be a little gritty and real to life.

This month’s selections are amazing! I love that BookCase.Club brings older books and new authors to my door monthly. I have never read so many books back to back since I started receiving this subscription. My favorite thing about this subscription is that since I haven’t read many books by the authors sent I normally have quite a few other books to fill my time. I wonder if I could make a career out of reading books without having to do reviews or say anything bad about an author. Can’t wait to see what May brings me.
